Mariscos Jalisco is undergoing mitosis, splitting into a second vehicle that will serve its same lauded menu in Downtown’s Fashion District, starting today at noon. The Boyle Heights taco truck won the distinction of “L.A.’s Favorite Taco” last year for its addictive shrimp tacos dorados, splitting the honor with Guisado’s. Owner Raul Ortega confirms that he’ll start serving at Standford and 10th Streets seven days a week, parked on the street Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays from 9:00 A.M. to 11:00 A.M., and the rest of the time from 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. in a private parking lot at that same intersection. The truck will take off Sundays.

Mariscos Jalisco’s expansion is great news for the Downtown lunch crowd and an encouraging report for taco lovers throughout the vicinity, seeing as Guisado’s also just opened up an Echo Park clone of its Eastside taqueria to kick off the new year.
